What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: the Kayaderosseras Creek, a ban on winners, a divine appetizer, beautiful meat, drinks, cheese, beer, flowers, eggs, stinky fruit, Billy Joel and Elton John, a handsome street and specific graffiti.

Jackie put together a little photo tour of the Kayaderosseras Creek's southern end.

How much of trivia all-star is Chuck? He was banned from one of the local games -- because he won too often.

Steve said he had a "truly divine" appetizer at Dale Miller.

Carey and Rob found "beautiful meat" at McGuire's.

Mr. Dave had some thoughts to prep people for the arrival of the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.

Kristi found a drink she likes at The Standard.

Albany Jane bought some seriously blue cheese at the Epicurean.

Daniel B said Mahar's is "one of the true treasures of Albany."

Capow went for dinner at New World Bistro Bar and said the food was "incredible."

Kimelodic said she's had great luck with the flowers from Lark Street Flower Market.

Sara's eggs are local... and dirty.

Nicole braved a durian from the Asian Market.

Matt had great seats for the Billy Joel/Elton John concert at the TU Center. Casey says she had "a true Albany experience" before the show.

Paula dropped a bit of history about one of Albany's "handsomest streets."

And Leigh came across some very specific bus graffiti.
